Residents reminded of smokeless tobacco risk
The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association reminds residents that smokeless tobacco (chew, snuff or dissolvable products) can lead to tooth decay, gum problems and mouth sores, according to a news release.
Chemicals in smokeless tobacco products also are linked to cancers of the esophagus, mouth and pancreas. Youth are particularly vulnerable to tobacco industry tactics making smokeless tobacco products cheap and enticing.
Support can improve a person’s chance of kicking nicotine addiction and quitting smokeless tobacco for good, the press release said. The Colorado QuitLine offers free personalized cessation phone support, call 1-800-QUIT-NOW. The Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurse Association offers counseling with a tobacco cessation specialist in Steamboat Springs or Craig. There is no fee for the service.
To be connected with a cessation counselor in Steamboat Springs or Craig, call 970-871-7634.
Gov. Jared Polis announced Thursday the hiring of Dan Prenzlow as the new director of Colorado Parks and Wildlife, according to a news release from CPW and Colorado Department of Natural Resources.
